Is it really an urban myth?


Recommended Posts

Damn; I actually had the balls to try this.

I did a fresh install of Windows XP SP1a (an old Dell Disk) on a spare external drive (old 20GB 5400 WD).

Once it was done, I did no updating; except for installing SP2. Then, I opened IE6 and typed in goggle.com

Holy crap, its true. Once the timer hit 0, the hell began. I left it sitting there, then went to get a bowl of cereal, came back, and I saw a blue screen with scrambling, unreadable white text.

Ouch.

Can anyone confirm if this also affects Firefox?

Did the computer reboot normally after this? With plenty of spyware, no doubt.

No, it didn't! The windows logo came up, got to the point of "Loading your personal Settings" then got a BSOD saying logonui.dll or something failed.

No worries though, just wiped the drive and installed Windows 98SE for fun :P. (It's a spare drive --EDIT: whoops, already said that)

Ditto to Levi (Mr. Perfection there...). I did it with Camino, and got a random page. Couldn't be bothered to try with Safari.

It's boring on a Mac. But surely, it'll be interesting at school on Windows computers... ;)

If you did this at my high school, I would have killed you. Since computers only get fixed every few months. I literally had to leave Ubuntu Live CDs in half of the lab computers just so they'd work.

haha lol... I passed the link of the video to a friend of mine and he had the balls to try this... I warned him "don't let the counter reach to 0:00" but he said he wanted to try it... then he said that a bunch of porn sites appeared at his computer and that there was a red dot at the middle of the screen... and the funniest thing of all is that he said that the girl from the Exorcist appeared in widescreen with an evil laugh lmfao :P
